Dr. Patel is as warm a health care professional as I have ever encountered. I believe this type of professionalism starts at the top and filters to the office personnel and staff. Dr. Patel and her staff are totally awesome!
Dr. Patel has always had a love of all things skin. During her residency, Dr. Patel discovered her passion for treating skin cancer and anti-aging and went on to complete a surgical fellowship under the tutelage of Dr. Michael McCall at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.
